Form & Verdict
Unexposed 6yo who switches to a handicap chase after finishing third in two Plumpton maiden hurdles during the winter (2m4f/2m); seems versatile regarding ground and has plenty of scope for improvement if he takes well to fences.

Form & Verdict
Ex-Irish 8yo; well beaten on first three hurdle runs for this yard but kept on for very respectable fourth here (2m, good) in May then ran big race when second from out of the weights in Cartmel chase (2m1f, good) a week ago; effectively 7lb lower from correct mark today; must be considered.

Form & Verdict
Made all to beat Getaway Jewel at Fakenham (2m, good) in May but has very mixed record since switched to chasing and was safely held after lacking fluency at Stratford last month (first-time cheekpieces); tried in first-time blinkers here; not an easy one to predict.

Well handicapped on last season's Irish hurdle form but didn't fire on either hurdle start for Neil King in May and looked reluctant when tailed off in Flat claimer last month; makes chasing debut here; far too risky.
